U.S. Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow of Michigan and Dick Durbin of Illinois write to federal oversight agency, calling on regulators to look into whether Enbridge Straits pipeline is working correctly. The Senators are concerned particularly after the Kalamazoo River disaster in 2010, and in light of knowledge that Enbridge increased flow in the Straits pipeline in 2013.
"If the pipeline running beneath the Straits of Mackinac were to leak or burst, it could have devastating effects on the Great Lakes and the entire region's economy," the Democratic senators wrote. U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IL, also signed the letter." - MLive, Dec. 11, 2013
